I like it. Gotta say the 1st 2 pics are the first i've seen that actually show the blue in the car and not the purple. Your color is starting to grow on me.

Looks good what % of tint did you go with. Looks about like the 20% rear / 35% front that I went with.

This color changes according to the amount of sun and angle of view.

It looks more purple in full sun light. Hint of purple with light and dark blue when it's cloudy. and dark blue at night. When she's caught in headlights at night, she's light purple. She has metalic flakes that compare to a Bass boat, it's one crazy color!

I love this car

Ok, so I pulled her into the garage and turned on some lights, then turned them off, then turned off the flash (not in that order)






I took these this morning

and some more...I could take pictures of this car all day. Forgive the water spots, they are on the camera, not the car.

The camera shows all flaws.

It's been documented on LS1.AU forum that Holden has had "paint problems" for the past 2 years on these plastic parts. They say it's lack of primer. You don't really notice it in person, so I don't care, it's beautiful to my naked eye!


changes color at night w/different lights
